Newcastle After Coventry’s Daniel Fox


We have been rumored to be after Coventry City’s 22 year old left-back all during January, so it’s not surprising there are a number of reports today saying we are about to sign the lad.

Daniel Fox – played for Richard Money at Walsall

Former Walsall left-back Daniel Fox could be moving to St James Park in what is said to be a £1.6M deal, but that fee seems very much on the cheap side, since this player is highly rated. But if we can get the lad for that, it would be a terrific value signing for the club.

The England U-21 international – he started the game earlier this year against Poland  on March 25th for his only cap – has been more than impressive for Coventry this season, making 42 appearances and scoring for them 4 times.

Daniel played 99 times at Walsall with 6 goals, from 2005 until earlier this year, and he seems the type of player Newcastle are trying to sign under owner Mike Ashley – top youngsters  who are still improving, and will be further developed at the Newcastle club.

The 6′ tall Fox began his career at the Everton Youth Academy in 2004, and was on on loan at Stranrear in Scotland, playing 11 games and scoring for them once in 2004, while still only 18.

He then moved to Walsall in 2005, where he played under Richard Money, who was then Walsall manager, and is now Newcastle’s Youth Academy Director, so Richard could be the link in this transfer.

Earlier this year, before Fox moved to Coventry City, Richard described him as the complete player.

Daniel Fox was born in May, 1986 in Winsford, Cheshire, and is said to be very keen to join the Magpies.

    I’ve seen him play for Coventry a few times this season and he’s looked good. However, some of my mates (City fans) say that 1.6m is too little for him, I’d guess add-ons will be added later 🙂

    Deadline extension could be pretty good, more time to secure those players.
    I reckon Veloso, Johnson, Fox, Garcia and possibly another striker to come in.
    Would leave the midfield looking excellent on paper, and hopefully Hypiia coming at the end of the season.

    Players leaving would be fringe players ie Geremi….didnt hear the subs yersterday but dont think he was on the bench……infact he wasnt…..

    oh and insomnia cos that aint been confirmed yet….

    Darren Bent would be an excellent signing….young, pacey with a point to prove to bloody dogtanian that he is better than his missus ( Harry’s missus finishing must be better than her eyesight married to that mush….she was a reet stunner aswell)

    anyhoooo…back to Bent…all this bollox re Everton….aint gonna happen….just the mirror trying to diss the toon….

    Fox would also add quality to the squad…..and good cover to Jose….hopefully the competition will add to his game…..at times yesterday he looked the part…..at other times well lets just call it average….

    think we might be pleasantly surprised by 5pm…

    oh aye…Keane on his way to london….Mr Bent will be on his way

    KuWaiTi….

    He was probably diverted from Heathrow…

    I reckon there’ll be four players announced by the end of the day.

    Ryan Taylor
    Michael Johnson
    Daniel Fox
    & possibly 1 other.. Darren Bent?

    Crack bout Johnsons alledge drink problem….alot of lads sometimes need to get away from old mates who are bad influences….a move away would be a great move for Micheal….very good player who has bags of potential….reminds me of a young Mr Carrick….and look how that boy turned out….

    Check this for an idea….we have another scouse lad in our squad who has had his troubles including alcohol problems that seems to have turned a corner with his life…could it be time for a certain Mr Barton to act as a shaperone (spelling) …

    Joey is my shout for captain next season….

    I think we will confirm Taylor today, as well as signing johnson,fox and 1 other player. I would like bent. Think the deadline will be extended today till midnight. When keane signs for spurs today bent will have no choice but to leave, so i think we will get him!!
